The best roller coaster in America?
- El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure

Let's keep in mind that the average reader ratings for these great coasters are jammed together as closely as riders waiting in their queues. The difference between numbers one and 10 in terms of quality isn't much at all — you'll enjoy a great ride on any of these coasters, as well as on several more that lurk just underneath the current top 10.
We asked fans of Theme Park Insider on Facebook and on Twitter to name their favorite roller coasters, too. We heard multiple responses for many of the coasters on the top 10 list above, including Millennium Force, El Toro, Bizarro, Voyage, and Apollo's Chariot. In addition, Theme Park Insider fans on Facebook and Twitter frequently lauded:
- Revenge of the Mummy at Universal Studios Florida
- Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal's Islands of Adevneture
- X2 at Six Flags Magic Mountain
- Diamondback at Kings Island
- Expedition Everest at Disney's Animal Kingdom
Let's celebrate another great summer of riding coasters with on-ride videos from some of your favorites:
